prime minister did iran and u.s. foreign policy part of the conversation on this morning's "washington journal." host: he is teaching as a professor of diplomacy and international politics at harvard. thank you for joining us. you heard the speeches from new york and all the play and the dueling foreign policy points. what is your take away as far as each candidate had to say in new york? guest: first, it is every interesting that foreign policy and national-security issues have made a real comeback. they are part of this campaign, a big part of the discussion. i think that is a good thing because of foreign policy is so important to every single american because we live in a globalized world. president obama gave a very thoughtful, reflective speech yesterday. he covered a lot of ground ready focused on the middle east and the very tragic events that took place two weeks ago this week, the assassination of ambassador chris stevens in libya and three of his diplomatic colleagues. he also made two important points, that americans obviously want to show great religious tolerance for the
unraveling of the obama administration's foreign policy. >> this was a terrorist attack on 9/11 that took the life of a united states ambassador, an american ambassador. this is serious stuff. americans deserve the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and b
's in charge, and that he is not being -- that his foreign policy is working instead of the fact that it seems to be unraveling as we watch the world scene. we see that country after country -- i don't know how many it's been, 15 or 20, where the people have been burning american flags, have been burning pictures of the president of the united states, have been attacking embassies in one way or another, demonstrating an opposition to the united states and to the policies that this president has put forward. and that's got to be disturbing, but you're in the middle of a political campaign, so it makes the administration look bad. my impression is that they're trying to spin things in a way that will mute the difficulties we face in the world, and they're serious difficulties. >> greta: how do you describe his foreign policy? >> i think that the foreign policy of this administration, for 3 1/2, 4 years now, has been one of a step back. the phrase that came out of the white house, to leads from behind, which you can't lead from behind. leaders lead from the front. the economic management of our c
, taxes and foreign policy. keeping them honest, when it comes to some of those issues, both candidates have come up short either on specifics or credibility. issues like cutting taxes without ballooning the deficit or burdening the middle class. the romney campaign has been asked again and again for specifics. here's running mate paul ryan just yesterday on fox news. >> there's been a traditional democrat and republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works. and you can -- >> i have to -- you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't have -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> chris wallace kept trying but came away empty-handed. he's not the only one. take a look. >> which of the deductions are you going to be willing to eliminate? which of the tax credits are you going to -- when are you going to be able to tell us that? >> we'll go through that process with congress. >> give me an example of a loophole that you will close. >> i can tell you that people at the high end, high income taxpayers, are going to have fewer deductions and exe
on foreign policy, releasing a scathing attack being the president's handling of mideast policy. here is the governor speaking with our carl cameron yesterday react being to the president's overall foreign policy and his recent comments about the violence. >> i think when the president said the developments in the middle east are like bumps in the road, i think he badly misunderstandses the nature of what is happening in the middle east, not just the assassination of our diplomats but a muslim brotherhood leader becoming the president of egypt, 20,000 people being killed in syria, iran moving towards nuclear capability, the developments in the middle east are far from being bumps in the road. jon: joining us now former u.s. ambassador to the u.n., ambassador john bolt tops, also a fox news contributor and a mitt romney supporter i should add. we are joined by cia covert operations officer mike baker. welcome, gentlemen to goat of you. mr. ambassador, ahmadinejad was here last year, he was here the year before that, this was to be his last address to the u.n. general assembly as iran's
. it is a reality in foreign policy we will have to deal with post arab spring. >>shepard: i read a couple of articles equating it to fire in a crowded theater, making the argument or should not be able to do something under freedom of speech that is absolutely going to insight violence and death. whether we get do that point, that is another matter entirely. >>guest: that is the issue. as much as all of us hate and abhor what the iranian president comes over and says, speaking publicly, in our country, saying horrible things, we respect his right to say them. we have to counter them through looking at the facts and refuting the statement he made denying the holocaust and things like that. that is a perfect example of why we believe that free speech has to win out. an irony of the egyptian leader is that he and many members of his organization, the muslim brotherhood, were thrown in prison for decades, because they were doing things like political speech. they want to be able to choose exactly which messages come out. that is the real danger of so-called "democracy" spreading through the m
personal relationships do matter in foreign policy. and there was an article in "the new york times" yesterday which caught our eye here. it had a quote from a middle east official. it said, you can't fix these problems by remote control. president obama doesn't have friends who are world leaders. he doesn't believe in patting anybody on the back, nicknames. you can't accomplish what you want to accomplish with such an impersonal style. do you agree the president has an impersonal style? >> not at all. i think he has met extensively with his counterparts. when you look at bibi netanyahu, i don't think there's a world leader he's met with more. he picked up the phone, they had an hour long conversation. this is a scheduling income patability. he spoke with leaders from egypt, libya, yemen, a number of other countries just last week in the wake of events in the heeft. this is an everyday part of his job. and he takes -- he relishes it. he does it with gusto. he has very strong relations with a number of these leaders. >> yet there is a feeling that he doesn't have deep personal relati

bush. >> the term october surprise has become a seismic event. most centered around foreign policy, others have been around the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisers say his campaign collapsed with it and never recovered. historians say for an october surprise to have an 11th hour impact, it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether carter's ineffectiveness or mccain. >> it's not yur reek a. this is a so surprising, so amazing, but rather people nod, yes. this is where we thought things were going. >> it's possible we may have already seen this election year's october surprise. maybe it was how the candidates reacted to tragedy in libya and the broader unrest in the middle east or mitt romney's infamous 47% remarks. or perhaps one or both of the campaigns is holding out damaging information about the other. or there will be an unfor foreseen event on the world stage. it wouldn't be an october surprise if we knew. >>> dana bash. >>> this is a live picture from the debate location in denver. you can see the podiums are set up on the
